La Plaine Saint-Denis district is situated in the north of Porte de la Chapelle and includes, historically, the towns of Saint-Denis, Aubervilliers and Saint-Ouen.
This old industrial district has been revitalized since the eighties. This can be seen with the construction of Stade de France, the covered A1 highway and the two main RER stations which now serve Plaine Saint-Denis. Television studios have set up here and several major companies have decided to leave Paris for this area.
